Balsamic-peach marinated pork tenderloin

Prep 10 min
Total 6 hours 30 min
Serves 4



1/4 cup
2 tbsp
balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp
1/2 tsp
1 tbsp
Dijon mustard
garlic cloves, grated
2 small
pork tenderloins, about 300 g each
1/4 cup

Grilled peach caprese salad

1/2 cup
white or regular balsamic vinegar
3 large
ripe peaches, quartered
zucchini, cut lengthwise into scant 1/2-in. slices
3 tbsp
olive oil, divided
1/2 tsp
1/4 tsp
4 cups
whole basil leaves
2 125-g balls
buffalo mozzarella


  • COMBINE jam, vinegar, soy sauce, pepper, Dijon and garlic in a large zip-top bag. Add pork, massaging to coat. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours, preferably overnight.
  • REMOVE pork from marinade to a plate and bring to room temperature. Meanwhile, bring marinade to a boil in a small saucepan with water over medium-high. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until mixture is reduced to a scant 1/4 cup and has a glaze-like consistency, about 10 min.
  • PREHEAT barbecue to medium. Oil grill. Grill tenderloin, flipping every 3 min, so all 4 sides have grill marks. Continue cooking until a thermometer inserted into the centre reads 145F, about 4 more min. Remove to a cutting board, cover with foil and let rest, 5 min. Slice pork, drizzle with glaze.

Peach Caprese Salad

  • BRING vinegar to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high barbecue until reduced to 3 tbsp, about 5 min.
  • TOSS peaches and zucchini with 1 tbsp oil, salt and pepper. Oil grill. Grill peaches and zucchini until just tender and slightly charred, 2 to 3 min per side. Remove to a platter and toss with basil. Tear mozzarella into large pieces and add to platter. Drizzle with remaining oil and some of the balsamic reduction before serving.

Kitchen tip: If you can’t find small tenderloins, use one large (about 500 g). It will take 3 to 4 more min to reach 145F. Use a sharp fillet knife to remove the silver skin (sinewy membrane on the outside of the tenderloin). Pierce through a section of the skin with the knife flat against the surface of the tenderloin, then use long, even sliding motions to cut the skin off.
